I have not read any of Wanda's books before,
but this one called out to be read when I saw the cover!
Synopsis: Join the club of unlikely quilters who show up for Amish widow Emma Yoder s quilting classes. A troubled young woman, a struggling couple, a widower, a rough and tough biker, and a preacher s wife make up the mismatched lot. But as their problems begin to bind them together like the scraps of fabric stitched together in a quilt, they learn to open up and lend a helping hand. Is this what God had in mind to heal hurting hearts and create beauty from fragments?
Review: When you combine Amish and 'Englishers'(as non-Amish are called) for a quilting class, you know there will be some interesting story lines. The author does a great job in bringing in Amish ways and thinking, and wrapping them around the current chapter's 'problem', and showing how God always has an answer for us. The characters are different, yet all have problems that Emma helps to facilitate the answers to. This was a quick and enjoyable read! if you want a book that brings the simpleness of Amish life and quilting to a new light, check out this book, for an enjoyable read!
The author also gives you the recipe for Emma's famous Angel Creme Pie at the end of the book!
